A happy ending for one of our satos! Mancha!

Thought we would send you an update on one of your rescued Sato’s (Mancha – rescued from a rooftop in San Juan in May 2010). Mancha; now Bella, is living with my wife Jayne and I in Foxboro, MA. We adopted her from Northeast Animal Shelter in Salem, MA on 9/23/10. She is a wonderful and loving dog and is doing very well. She has gotten over any shyness very quickly, and loves to curl-up in Jayne’s lap and have her belly rubbed. She is a perfect dog for us, we couldn’t be happier.

Thank you for your efforts in saving the Sato’s of Puerto Rico.

Sasha and Betty, in need of a new home

This is Sasha. Her owner died and she and her sister got left alone in a house for who knows how long. When they found her, their hair was extremely long, you couldn't even see their faces. When Gloria, Save a Sato's president, took them into the shelter, she spent hours cutting and detangling all their hair. She was in very bad condition, but she's getting better now. She is a senior dog, extremely sweet, calm, and loving. She needs someone to take very good care of her for her last years in this world. We don't know how was her life before arriving to the shelter, but she deserves someone that will love her for the rest of her life and give her lots of attention and affection. She probably doesn't see too well, so she needs someone that will treat her gently. She would be a great dog for an older person or a calm home without young children.

She will be your best company if you give her the chance. Look at those eyes, you can see her old soul waiting for her new life.

A happy ending for one of our satos!

Here is a story we want to share! thanks to Mary Ebbott &
Mark Tomasko for giving a good life to this sato! here is what they wrote...
We wanted to send you an overdue update. Just over a year ago (August  
2009), my wife and I adopted Pedro (then called Pepe), who was  
originally rescued by the Save A Sato program in Puerto Rico. We got  
him from the Worcester Animal Rescue League in Massachusetts, and  
we’re both so glad that we did – he’s  a big part of our lives, and we  
love him very much.
Pedro was shy and timid at first, so much so that he didn’t play like  
the young boy that he was. But he has settled into his home with us  
quite well, and now he’s a very happy and comfortable little guy. He  
loves to play fetch and tug and nibble on his toys, and to lie in the  
sun in his yard – and on the couch. Pedro is sweet, gentle, well  
behaved, and smart. He’s learned to sit, stay, and come, and he’ll  
give you his paw. Pedro also loves going on his long walks with my  
wife Mary every morning (rain or shine). People often stop to tell her  
what a nice looking dog he is, and to comment on his jaunty stride.  
We’re very grateful to the kind people at Save A Sato and the WARL,  
thanks for the wonderful work you do.

First man in P.R. Convicted for violating the animal protection law

A man accused of dragging a horse next to his truck became the first Puerto Rican convicted by a jury for violating the animal protection law.
Georgenan Lopez, 24, will face his sentence in November and could carry up to 15 years in prison, the prosecutor
Andres Fernandez said today .
The horse could recover from all injuries in February, but still lame and no one can ride it, said Lisa Embree, director of a horse rescue center located in the town of Rincon.
Activists in favor of animal rights hailed the court's decision and believes there is evidence that is beginning to recognize the rights of animals.
